Graphics, User Interfaces "We're able to produce absolutely stunning websites and mobile apps with great interaction design. Interfaces that are smooth and fun and let us understand information without even trying. But when it comes to email clients, we get a bit of a boring feeling, like using an old piece of software from 10 years ago. I think we can do better. So let's do that." Great ideas and beautiful design by Tobias van Schneider, but why he would forcefully shoehorn this clearly digital UI into Mac OS X is beyond me. It has no place there. This just screams Metro.

Maybe he has always been searching for it but I haven't. Maybe he should bother to explain what an actionstep is and why I need it.

I like marking mail as read, I like dragging mail into a todo list folder. I get 8 mails a day. I don't use online networking and don't need that crap in my mail.

If they guy really spend 50% of his time going through email, there is something wrong with him. Having said that, his site is great.... shame he used images for everything.... but I think apple do this on their home page too. He is a fanboi.

Yeah, I was wondering about that too. Wtf is an ActionStep? From the looks of it it's some kind of glorified tag. You know, tags, what most email clients have implemented forever.

but I think apple do this on their home page too. He is a fanboi.


At first I thought "no way Apple do that" but ...WTF? They do. So much for that awesome design sense...
